HE the Advisory Council Speaker Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid al-Mahmoud stressed that Qatar has been subjected to an unjust siege since June 5, 2017, which was imposed by the neighbouring countries under false pretexts and through the use of cyber-crime and cyber-hacking exploiting modern cyber-information technology, affirming that those who misuse cyber-technology must be held accountable everywhere.
He was speaking at the third meeting of heads of parliaments of European and Asian countries (Eurasia) on economic co-operation, environment and sustainable development in Eurasia, in Antalya, Turkey.
The Advisory Council Speaker pointed out that His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani called to regulate the use of digital and informatics technology in accordance with a law that regulates this field, during the meetings of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly last month.
The Amir also expressed Qatar’s readiness to work with UN organisations to organise this law legally. In addition, he also proposed an international conference to discuss ways of regulating the use of digital and informatics technology in international law, he added.
The Advisory Council Speaker said that Qatar will host the Munich Security Conference (MSC) Cyber Security Summit in 2019, adding that the summit will be hosted in partnership with the Munich Security Conference and Qatar’s National Cyber Security Committee (NCSC).
He stressed that Qatar is keen to support joint action within the international and regional organisations to which it has joined.
He added that Qatar is committed to working towards integration among the countries by expanding co-operation and strengthening partnerships with other regional organisations, unions and blocs, in order to serve the interests of the region and in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 objectives and to enhance the international co-operation within which Qatar took over the Asian Co-operation Dialogue (ACD) presidency of 2019 last month.

Amir’s invitation to hold international
cybersecurity conference in Qatar welcomed

The joint statement of the Speakers of Eurasian Countries’ Parliaments welcomed the invitation of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to hold an international conference on cybersecurity hosted by Qatar, in his address to the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York recently. At the end of their two-day meeting in Antalya, Turkey, the Speakers commended the invitation and the holding of the conference in Doha because the issue of cybersecurity is of great importance as a cross-cutting issue requiring concerted efforts to deal effectively with it. The participants stressed in the joint statement that cyberspace represents a potential opportunity for economic development and regional technology, stressing the need for closer co-operation and co-ordination in Eurasia on cybersecurity issues, including confidence-building measures in policy development and capacity-building initiatives. They also stressed the importance of the call made by Qatar in co-operation with non-governmental agencies to convene and host an international conference on cybersecurity.
